Para amantes y ladrones

For Lovers and Thieves | Anagrama, 2000

Pedro, a young cook with very selective literary taste, finds himself involved in the life of a group of writers and their editor during a stormy weekend in which the mysterious, innocent-looking Polín will open up for him new perspectives on passion and unrequited love.

The meeting is intended to be a long birthday party for the editor, who asks his writers for a very special present: a short story about misunderstanding that should be ready by the end of their stay. Story-telling and the coexistence of sensitive talented persons under the same roof bring into play their most feared obsessions and failed dreams and their useless but necessary search for happiness.
